Disaster Preparedness in Long Term Care Facilities training course

Workplace emergencies are rather common. They range from small incidents, such as a fire alarm going off, to large events like hurricanes and snowstorms. In the long-term healthcare setting, staff members are responsible for more than just their own safety during an emergency. They must also see to the needs of patients and residents. In order to minimize injuries, save lives, and prevent facility damage, managers and staff members must be prepared to think clearly and take effective actions in a wide range of emergency situations. This course discusses how long-term care facility staff can be prepared for a disaster and how to respond during an emergency.
